Mordchai Ravid, Yael Dinai, Ezra Sohar

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Dupuytren's disease (DD) was demonstrated in 169 of 959 diabetics (17.6%) and in 9 of 1,396 non-diabetic patients (0.64%). One hundred and seventy-nine of the 185 patients with DD had overt or latent diabetes mellitus (96.7%). The relative frequency of DD increased with age, the conditions was seldom found under the age of 40. DD should be regarded as a non-hyperglycemic manifestation of diabetes mellitus and its presence in a patient should prompt the investigation of glucose metabolism.
